He remained at the Stehlin Oncology Clinic for two additional years and in 1994 was awarded the Houston’s Consumer Choice Award for Health Care Providers as the Physician of the Year. Most recently he was recognized as one of Lane County’s Best Doctors in a survey done by Eugene Magazine.
Dr. Trezona moved to Eugene and opened Cascade Surgical Oncology in 1995. He is board certified and an active member in the American College of Surgeons, the American Society for Clinical Oncology, and other national and international Surgical and Oncology Societies. He has published extensively in the oncology literature. Dr. Trezona is the only Surgical Oncologist between Portland and San Francisco with a focus of comprehensive cancer care. He cares for both the surgical and medical oncology needs of his patients in a personal and compassionate way. This specialized focus draws patients from beyond the Eugene/Springfield area. He sees patients from throughout the Willamette Valley, central and southern Oregon and northern California.
There has been a dramatic increase in recent years in the number of melanoma cases that occur in this country, and especially Oregon. Because of this, Dr Trezona has felt the need to develop a clinic focused entirely on the care of people with melanoma. This has led to opening the Oregon Melanoma Center where he will focus his attention only on the care of people with melanoma.
He is married and the father of 2 daughters. Dr. Trezona relaxes with woodworking, boating, and maintaining a coral reef aquarium.
With the many changes in health care over the years the constant that motivates me is the heart of the doctor and staff in realizing that there is more to medicine than treating disease. At Oregon Melanoma Center there is a commitment to being present with the whole person, mind, body and spirit. That’s why I love working here; it challenges me both professionally and personally.
